Publisher's Summary

Nursing the faded scars of a long-held trauma, Emily Page and her husband, awaiting the arrival of their first child, move from New York City to the uber-wealthy Clairmont, Texas. There, Emily is swept into a world of opulent privilege and shifting loyalties. But the secrets she keeps follow her south, and with them comes the danger that her new friends can't protect her from, and her new enemies will not hesitate to use to destroy her once and for all.

Lie Still

This was a good novel. The narrator was solid all the way through, giving voice to several different characters in different accents. The story had several components which the author was able to connect solidly. At times, I felt that the author provided unnecessary details which were mundane. However, overall, I think it's a solid audiobook!

Heaberlin keeps you guessing

Completely unable to predict the end of this one - another masterpiece by Heaberlin.
Hard to anticipate where she'll go next. This book has a dark premise that sneaks up on you at every turn. Couldn't stop listening.

Disappointing

It was interesting and we'll written in parts. I liked Letty a lot, but many of the characters weren't very believable. The narrator, however, was fantastic.

A Flaccid Flop

What disappointed you about Lie Still?

This story sounded good in the description and in some of the reviews, but it didn't begin to live up to its hype. l struggled to care about Emily, the protagonist, and her problems. I had hopes that as the story progressed, that I would want to know what would happen next, but it just went on and on and on … with all these obnoxious grown up Texas sorority girls and Caroline, their "pledge master" directing their lives. I did not care who murdered Caroline. Actually, I was hoping someone would, but even when that happened, still the story dragged on. I kept wishing Emily would deliver her husband an ultimatum, take off back to New York, have her baby, hire a nanny, and get on with her life. The story deals somewhat with date rape and that is a worthy subject to explore but this story just didn't deliver on that and it isn't even the main thread. I did not finish this audiobook. I just couldn't listen to one more obnoxious Texas airhead. If I were a Texan I would be good and mad at this book. So what bothered me the most? I guess it would have to be the whole storyline. I listened to about 3/4 of it and quit when I decided that the story arc wasn't functioning. It was there but it just wasn't working. This book needed some serious editing, but even an editor couldn't fix the vapid prose.

Has Lie Still turned you off from other books in this genre?

I won't be listening to any more books of its ilk. I didn't like Gone Girl either. Both were ridiculous.

Would you be willing to try another one of Rebecca Gibel’s performances?

As long as she doesn't read them in a southern accent. And by the way, hers is good. But I need a rest!

What character would you cut from Lie Still?

Most of them.

Any additional comments?

I would love to have my credit back.
